Greek Salad Skewers

photo 2Serves six to eight

1/4 to 1/2 English cucumber (hot house)

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

1/4 to 1/3 pound feta cheese cut into 16 small cubes

8 to 10 pitted Kalamata olives, halved

8 to 10 ripe grape or cherry tomatoes, halved

2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Fancy cocktail party picks or 3 to 4 inch wooden skewers

To prepare:

Cut four, one-half inch thick diagonal slices from the cucumber and then quarter each slice.   Set the cucumber pieces on a large serving platter and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Top each with a piece of feta, then an olive half.   Stab a toothpick though a tomato half and then thread through each cucumber stack pushing the toothpick down to secure it.   Drizzle the whole affair with olive oil and sprinkle with black pepper and serve.   These Hors d’oeuvres will keep at room temperature for one to two hours.
